Diagnosing Meningococcal Septicaemia

Symptoms for meningococcal septicaemia include:

  • A high temperature
  • A rash which does not disappear when a glass is placed on it
  • Red spots
  • Sore throat
  • Aching limbs

Someone displaying any of these symptoms should seek urgent medical advice.

Claiming compensation for meningococcal septicaemia

A claim may be made on behalf of the person who has suffered as a result of the delayed or failed diagnosis, or for their relatives in the case of a fatal claim for medical negligence compensation.

If medical professionals do make errors when managing meningococcal septicaemiaand a patient suffers as a result, there may well be a case of medical negligence. This commonly occurs when the medical team:-

  • Fail to carry out the necessary tests;
  • Make a misdiagnosis;
  • Fail to make a timely diagnosis;
  • Fail to provide emergency treatment.
